    Navy to Army?

    Advertisements
    Has anyone's SO done it? Has anyone SO done it after the Blue to Green program was ended?

    What are the pro's of the Army?

    Right now the only draw back we see to the Army is the deployment rates but we can tough 'em out. So what other con's are we missing about the Army?

    I guess my first question would be why is he getting out of the Navy?

    ???

    When did the Blue to Green Program end? I would contact the Army Recruiter to find out his options. There are some variables that play in to switching over and you would be finding out factual information.

    My DH's command had recently conducted a Blue to Green Brief for separating Sailors who were interested in the switch.

    You hit the nail on the head. He is sooo fed up of not advancing, how shitty the navy advances and how ridiculous this rate is over manned and that they are pushing MA's into the shitty jobs while giving the good ones, ie patrol to the civi's.

    If they're not happy with MA advancement, have they looked into cross-rating? There are plenty of rates in the Navy with excellent advancement rates.

    Yep I know how you feel, Tim is over not advancing, he has been a second class since for almost as long as I've know him ( 4 years) he use to refer to himself as a "gate guard". He finally went and spoke to an army recruiter the other day.
